Cooperatively-Owned & Managed

Alvarado Street Bakery is a worker-owned cooperative, managed entirely by the member-owners who work there. Each worker is an owner and 100% committed to delivering the best organic breads possible for the pleasure of the customers and the success of the bakery. It is a symbiosis that creates a win-win-win situation between the workers, the consumers, and the vendors.

  • What is Certified Organic?

    Alvarado Street Bakery has been a Certified Organic Bakery since its inception... over 35 years ago!

    Simply stated, this means the grains, fruits, and ingredients we use to produce our breads have been grown using traditional farming practices that do not allow for any harmful pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, or fertilizers to be used on Certified Organic land.

    Certified Organic means No GMO's, sewage sludge, or irradiation. This results in good, clean ingredients, all natural... just how nature intended food to be.

    At Alvarado Street Bakery, we go beyond organic and take additional steps to produce the best natural breads.

  • Why we are a Green Company!

    Being an environmentally conscious business is at the heart of our cooperative and how each Alvarado worker-owner feels.

    Over the years, Alvarado Street Bakery received numerous green awards and continues to lead the way for other businesses interested in being green.

    For our team, simply reducing our carbon foot print is not enough; we go farther by encouraging each worker to take a leading role in reducing water consumption, maximizing recycling whenever possible, improving our existing solar power system, educating others, and taking other steps.

    We take pride in being a recognized green bakery and will persevere in our efforts to be the best we can be.

I work on the Bagel line. I very much like my work and the benefits that we have. I enjoy working here!

Olivia Hernandez - Bagel Production Line

I wanted to work at ASB because it is a socially responsible company and an excellent example of a worker co-op on a large scale. My favorite breads are the Sprouted Sonoma Sun Bread and the Sprouted Whole Wheat Bread!

Steve Consiglio - Bread Baking & Packaging

I love it when I am in the field representing the co-op, and people come up to me to say they love our breads, and have been buying them for years. It feels like we are making a difference in people's lives.
